Why Charms?

Charms is a software program that was created by band directors and designed to assist in nearly all aspects of an involved music program. It allows band directors to not only store and organize information, but allows students and parents access to specified categories, including instrument inventory, uniform inventory, music library, fundraising, finances, calendar, communication, assessments, documents, and more. Every student will have their own login information unique to them, including their own password so their data remains private. I'm still learning the power of this program but it is a game changer.

How to Log into Charms

  1. Click HERE to be redirected to the Charms login on their website.

  2. Select the "Parents/Students/Members" section of the login unless you are a designated "Helper".

  3. Enter the School ID that I will provide once school starts, then enter your 8 digit student ID number that starts with either 2018####, 2019####, 2010####, 2021####, as your temporary password. Helpers will be contacted by me directly with login information.

  4. After logging into Charms for the first time, it will prompt you to create a new password. I recommend using the same password you use for your school gmail account so it will be the same and you do not forget it.

  5. Create a "clue" to remind you what you used as your password.

Please note that some users will have access to different parts of Charms based on their needs and willingness to volunteer. Departments such as uniform inventory, store, fundraising, finances, etc. will only be given access to those that need it. Section leaders and/or band council members may have more access, so please do not share with others.
